Introduced to England by the Normans as the Middle Ages were coming to an end, Emery has been used as a surname as well as a boys' name. Today it has a solid reputation as a girls' name; you’d be hard-pressed to find any male who answers to it. Emery has a pretty, happy sound to it and provides a fresh alternative to the ever-popular Emily and Emma. Even celebrities are drawn to it, like actress Angie Harmon and former NFL cornerback Jason Sehorn, who named their daughter Emery in 2008.
